Side walls

Side walls refer to the vertical walls that make up the sides of a building, and that are adjacent to the roof. These walls provide support for the roof structure and are typically constructed using a variety of building materials, such as wood, masonry, or metal.

In a roofing context, side walls are important for a number of reasons. They provide support and stability for the roof structure, and help to distribute the weight of the roof evenly across the building. They also play a critical role in preventing water intrusion and protecting the interior of the building from the elements.

The design and construction of side walls will depend on a range of factors, including the climate in the area, the building’s intended use, and the specific needs of the building and its occupants. They may be designed to be load-bearing, or may be designed to provide a decorative or aesthetic accent to the building.

Overall, side walls are an important component of the roof system and play a critical role in ensuring the long-term durability and performance of the roof. Proper design and construction of side walls, along with regular maintenance and inspections, can help to ensure the continued functionality and longevity of the building and its roof system.
